The Wildlife of Cape Province

Join us at Whisby Education Centre on Thursday 19th January at 7:30pm where Gary Steele will be giving an illustrated talk about the wildlife and flora of Cape Province in the south-western coast of South Africa.

The wildlife at Cape Province is incredibly diverse with much of it found nowhere else in the world. It’s home to birds such as the African penguin, Cape gannet and colourful sunbirds, rock hyraxes, small mammals related to elephants, Cape mountain zebras, and a profusion of wildflowers.

Entry is £2.50 (cash only) including refreshments. Everyone is welcome! You don’t need to be a member of the Wildlife Trust to attend. Whisby Education Centre, Whisby Nature Park, Moor Lane, Thorpe-on-the-Hill, LN6 9BW.

The talk is organised by the Lincoln Area Group of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust; a voluntary charitable organisation which cares for Lincolnshire’s wildlife and countryside. It is one of 46 similar Wildlife Trusts covering the UK which are affiliated to the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is one of the oldest of these county trusts, having been founded in 1948 with the purpose of bringing wildlife back, empowering people to take action for nature and to create a society where nature matters.
